I’m looking for a good source for hardwood lumber in the Seattle area. Actually around the Bellevue-Redmond area. Anyone have any good sources?

Thanks an advance.

I don’t know of any in the Bellevue-Redmond area. I usually go to Crosscut in Seattle, or Edensaw which is all the way on the other side of the sound in Port Townsend.

Thanks Jeff. Anything has got to be better than Dunn.

I deal with Upper Canada forest products here quite a bit(half mil a year?), and they have a US counterpart, Sierra forest products.
I’ve never dealt with Sierra before, but they’re a tight knit group so I would assume the same level of customer service and quality of material. Top notch 100% on both. I don’t hesitate to recommend them.

Yeah, I would buy from woodcraft or rockler before I would buy from Dunn. They are pricey.

There’s Compton lumber across the street from Crosscut as well, but I’ve never been there. If needed, there’s a Woodcraft in the same area, but further south and closer to I-5.

I use Hardwood Industries in Portland. They have 2 sites in the Seattle area, Woodinville and Kent. Can’t recommend them enough. More selection of Ply than Crosscuts, maybe not as much rough lumber. Also here they regularly have 4-5 pallets of Mahogany, Cherry, Maple, Walnut on sale out front. I got a lot of Mahogany for 2.99/bf from that stack.

Crosscut hardwoods and Compton lumber are both in the SODO district.

Sumner woodworking in Sumner, Wa also has a small selection and carries rockler stuff.

Those are the only lumber yards i am aware of in Seattle. . There are small mills that post on craigslist from time to time and a place on 72nd st in Tacoma that sells live edge slabs, have never stopped in and don’t know if they sell anything else.

Try Bill Betts in Rochester. He has a lg Woodmiser and cuts many of the domestic trees. Prices are very pleasant.

I have purchased West Maple, Cherry, Ash, Cedar, Doug Fir, and many others. Call him for current inventory.
